Not my kind of car but it's a pretty good deal compared to other personal lease deals. If you want more miles, call them and ask - if you're lucky it could be just a few pounds per month for a lot more miles.

£94.99 p/m for business users.

MRP £15,395.00

Drove this motor in the focus, was impressed. But better again in this.

Becoming easier to appreciate the benefits of these sort of lease deals- 3800 being the 2yr cost of ownership, this equates to roughly the estimated loss in depreciation in that time. Voted hot on that basis.

Tempted to try leasing rather than buying a second hand car again. What are the other main benefits? Servicing etc?

again are we going to go with any and every leasing deal that people find, can we have a dedicated thread or it simply becomes another cheap android phones from DX being every other post.

*note i had the zetec s (previous model) and it was quick at times but really underpowered. I now have a 1.6 titanium TDCI which is really nice to drive but again the power drops off pretty quick

Well the idea is that you hopefully won't have to service it apart from maybe 2 new front tyres. No MOT necessary either. In the meanwhile, you can invest your earnings in assets that actually appreciate rather than depreciate, like savings and investments.

yeah right, like hotukdeals let's me keep hold of my money long enough for me to invest it wisely!

Yes you will need to have it serviced in accordance with manufacturers recommendations. If you don't, expect charges when you return it Don't know what the service interval on these is, but its likely you will just need the 1 in the time you have it.

Get the front and rear wheels swapped over halfway through and that should even the wear out enough to avoid having to get new tyres

There is a 180 quid admin fee on top of the 1200 deposit.

I got this car in June from this company. Slightly different deal 966 deposit (Including the 180 admin fee) and 131 a month. 3979 in total.

I think the above deal is also still available and works out about the same if you add the admin fee to the ops deal, smaller deposit required though.

Voted hot as it's an awesome car. I got the copper pulse colour and it looks amazing to.

Hopefully your idea of swapping the tyres will offset the cost of one service.

so against it. £3800 will buy you a second hand car which has probably got another 5 years left in it and you ll more then likely sell it for 2k when you had enough looking like your means and earnings. but again it wont have a hdmi 1.4 with capacitive touch screen and yes it wont be the newest rhing so uou wont look so sorted driving it..... not voting

£3822 for 2y provided there is NO scratches/marks/stone chip/dings outside there strict checks even on the alloys. Or you will pay hefty charges.

I'm still yet to pay any charges on my lease cars I've had and they had damage. They're nowhere near as strict as people make out. If you've damaged enough to pay charges you've damaged it enough for it to have made an impact on its resale value. Therefore even if you owned it you'd lose money.

125bhp and 200nm torque underpowered for a 1000kg car?? I own it and it's far from underpowered.

HOT !

Cheaper than the depreciation over the same period of time and with the advantage of keeping your money in the bank. Just a note, don't believe the official fuel figures especially on this little ecoboost engine- check out honestjohn/realmpg, Very good little turbo engine otherwise.

Best metalic colour is Deep Impact Blue (Almost same as ST blue)

Worth upgrading to Privacy Glass and the 17inch Rollers.

Great car, great economy, great engine.

I work for Ford.

I don't really like the look of the Zetec S. Looks a bit too "let's all go to a B&Q car park and look at our cars" for me.

a neighbour has advised me totally against leasing a car

he returned his lease car, and they inspected it all under a UV light for paint flaws and touchups!
they tried to rob him of his deposit because of some minor wear and tear and for a kerbed alloy they wanted to deduct £300, halfords/alloy repairers would have repaired it for £50!

neighbour said to just remember on the return of a lease car they have the upper hand and are trained to milk the money out of you!

Given many cleaning fluids will show under UV light, clean your car before you give it back to them and they won't be able to tell the difference!

The wife has this car in white with the 17" alloys and she is very happy with it and it goes very well indeed with good mpg

My company lease car changes this month. It has a few scratches and a small bumper dent issue (previous driver), which are having to be repaired before it's returned, which will cost £500+. Remember the car has to be returned spotless

There is a fair wear and tear aspect to these deals. A certain amount of stone chips, minor wear etc has to be acceptable otherwise it would be classed as an unfair contract and can be challenged.

doesn't really make any difference if your leasing because your handing it back not selling it

That's nonsense, as you don't pay a deposit on lease deals, you pay and upfront charge, but it's not returnable whatever happens.

With regards to these being underpowered, I have one and they are not, it goes like stink, and is great fun to drive. My other car is an Impreza turbo, but the Fiesta is more fun to drive as it's got so much power low down the rev range.

It's also a good idea to take photos of the car before it's returned in case of any dispute with the leasing company.
Guide to leasing - end of contract

make sure its the 125bhp and not the 100bhp 1.0 engine. the 125 bhp is a scream:-)

Ive just ordered one of these from Ford lease, which when you factor in the 12k miles p/a I need is about the same as this price.

My local Ford dealer couldnt do this personal lease for less than £254 + vat, yet a certain other quoted £141.40 + vat. with 3 months deposit. Excess mileage at 5ppm up to 9999m 7ppm thereafter.

Would have liked the 17" wheels but they would have cost £312 extra. Not worth it to me.

That seems an exceptional price.

I Am bit confused how renting a car Is a good investment.
A brandnew fiesta is 9000k if you paid 750 deposit with ford and got finance over 5 years then the payments per month would be roughly the same and if in two years you decide to sell YOUR car then your not going to be a crazy 4grand out of pocket.
Is just mad why anyone would do this..
Even better, buy a four,five year old fiesta for the same price.

Having used Merc C220 on lease I do know they are very fussy about scratches, I had couple of scratches on the inside of back bumper due luggage bags which would usually won't be seen when boot is closed but they said it falls outside wear and tear and charged £180!! Merc. dealer charged full wack on tyres when serviced as they said we have to use merc. approved tyres only, you cannot use any cheaper makes. Few scuffs on a alloys after using 3 years costs £110.
So yes some leasing co. are fussy and strict unless you are over 60 and use car to and from doctors.
